As the other autobattlers dominate the news, Auto Chess returns to the limelight with the announcement of its upcoming PC alpha test.
Epic Games Store recently revealed via Twitter that Auto Chess' PC alpha will begin within the week. It will be exclusive to Epic Games Store as announced during E3 2019 and after it has run its course, the open beta will begin the same day.
Whether it's their head start or the fact that they originally created the mod that started it all (Dota Auto Chess), but so far Auto Chess seems to be the most stable release from all the stand-alone autobattlers. In an alpha test, things are bound to go wrong, but with their expertise, maybe not so much.
Tencent just recently announced its own autobattler called Chess Rush, which is expected to be released very soon. Coming to mobile devices, Team Fight Tactics will be the only autobattler not available on mobile, and vice-versa for Chess Rush. As the competition becomes more fierce, it's quite clear the autobattler genre is here to stay.
